We all know what murder is, and we know that is not just unlawful but highly inhumane too.
We all do not wish to be murdered by a fellow human, because of course that is the only way it will be termed “murder”.
So, to this term “murder” is a lot of varying levels. By that I mean degrees, some of which are higher than some or more punishable than some in the eyes of the law and even maybe in the eyes of humans too.
Let’s take a quick sample, if an angry mob beats a kidnapper or a thief to death, or sets him ablaze it qualifies as murder yeah?
How about if a person is struggling against another, and some how kills his or her rival in the process out of self defense, that’s murder too right?
But they are degrees to both murder cases above, and will be treated differently in the eyes of the law to deliver justice.
This quickly reminds us of the George Floyd’s case, and the police officer who stepped on George Floyd’s neck until suffocating him whose name is Derek Chauvin.
Justice is gradually taking over as Mr. Chauvin has been sentenced to 22 years and 6 months for his role in Floyd’s death, being convicted for second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the death of Floyd on April 20, 2021 in Minneapolis, Minn.
This being said, one may ask “what level of justice is truly justice for the murdered?”
Frankly, the laws can only attempt to regulate and fix a murder case but they cannot truly compensate for the loss soul.
It is therefore, the place of humans to first and always be humans at all cost before their status, careers, religious beliefs etc.
